Police investigating after man seen forced into the back of a van
DETECTIVES have appealed for information after a group of men were seen forcing another man into the back of a van in North Yorkshire.
The incident occurred at White Gate Hill, Hunmanby, near Filey, at about 8pm yesterday, when witnesses reported a group of men apparently struggling with another man in the rear of a small white van.
The van was similar to a Citroen Berlingo or Peugeot Partner with no writing on the side and a grill behind the driver’s seat, and all the men were described as wearing work clothes.
Detective Inspector Darrin Knight, of Scarborough CID, said: “We remain open minded regarding this incident. It could be a group of friends playing a prank, or some other innocent explanation.
“We would, however, like to speak to those involved, or anyone else who may have seen this incident in order to confirm what had happened.”
Anyone with information should contact North Yorkshire Police on 101 and ask for Scarborough CID.
Alternatively, phone Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.
